    Mostly she's reaching into the dark places, teasing pain from the wreckage and holding it up for all to see.

    Downbeat words are buoyed up by light pop textures, leaning heavily for character on the fragile virtues of a voice that, while full of expression, is not designed for pop.

    Griffith presents her deeply felt personal secrets and political fears to sing and cover songs that come from the heart without shutting off her brain.

    What you can not deny on the twenty Nanci Griffith's album - "Intersection" is definitely her distinctive vocals, which creates a specific mood. Unfortunately you can not say the same about the arrangement of songs. They are typical acoustic-folk compositions interspersed with country elements - but overall not really bringing anything new - only performance of the artist creates a harmonious whole. Expand
